Every year, when Father’s Day comes around, I love spoiling the big man in our house. Mr. A Southern Soul works so hard, is such a great dad and a wonderful husband. The boys and I always get the yard work and chores done so that he can take things nice and easy over the weekend. Now, to some, this may seem a little old fashioned but it’s not for us. We try to honor each other, everyone in the family, in special ways. My most favorite way to do that is through cooking some of my guys favorite dishes. It’s not too hard to come up with a menu since he likes most everything I cooks, well….except for a handful of veggies that I just can’t convenience him to like.

This year, we’re starting out with two great appetizers that can be made ahead of when you’d like to serve them. The fresh tomato salad and potatoes in foil packs can also be made ahead of time so that you’re not running around trying to get everything cooked or on the table at the same time. A few weeks ago, while we were at the coast, I made this grilled chicken recipe and y’all, Mr. SS went nuts over it! To make it extra flavorful, marinade it overnight then grill it when you’re ready. When it’s time for dessert, I went all in. Sweet’s are one thing I know my guy can’t pass up so, I’ve included three in this menu. Ambrosia salad is a great accompaniment to the chicken or can be served as a dessert. I’ve also added in Lemon Icebox Pie because it’s a favorite and just to make Dad feel really special, a batch of Muddy Buddies for snack while he’s watch a little TV, reads a book or maybe even takes a nap. This is one sure fire menu guaranteed to make Father’s Day special for any great man!
